I kind of second this notion. I was all for Spoon and all, but it just
seems like this top secret organization with some very select people that
drive its decisions. I also feel like it will eventually begin to fragment
the community into the "We-are-with-Spoon" committers vs. the
"We-are-lone-rangers" committers.

I know the Spoon guys have stated on several occasions that its all open
etc... but really, its not. The "monthly" newsletter was sent in November,
its been 2, going on 3, months since the "monthly". No one really knows
what the agenda is except for the core officers, and it just feels like
there's a bunch of things going on over there that should be happening on
this list as opposed to some secret hiding place where only but a few can
listen in.

I am probably completely wrong about this, but if we learned anything about
anything during the 11/9 announcements its that perception carries a lot of
weight, and my perception of Spoon right now is not really the best... not
really bad... but not really good either.
